Celebrating Bronze!

Has a country even been more enthusiastic about an Olympic bronze medal?

1218.  2004 Tantalus Classic Cuvée (Okanagan Valley)

Méthode Champenoise wines are regularly noted for their yeasty overtones.  That was no different with this Tantalus Cuvée, but I'd venture to say that this yeasty profile was more akin to sourdough than it was to the oft-mentioned brioche.  I don't know if that note had developed as the bubble had a bit of age or not, but a hint of lemon made for a tasty twist.
